10 May (Part 1) -
New website - Screen width
It has been suggested that the unlimited page width makes reading difficult on
text intensive pages when the browser window is maximised on a fullHD (1920 x 1080 pixels) screen.
At 6 a.m. this morning every file was changed such that screen text width is
restricted to 1280 pixels; a figure plucked from the air, feel free to suggest a different one.
It is not practical to restrict the banner area which will continue to fill the screen.
On an UltraHD screen (3840 x 2160 pixels) text will continue to occupy the whole of the window whatever width it is dragged to.
There is still work to be done, like centring affected pages (†)
and ensuring that photo only pages will always be shown at full width. Screen display will be disrupted while work goes on.
† The changes had unexpected far reaching consequences which
proved difficult to fix. Every blog is affected and they will need individual
attention. This month’s blogs have been adjusted. Older ones are not correctly
dealing with blog titles and indented text and pictures. Only desktop mode
defines as screen widths from 1025 to 1920 pixels are affected.
